“Accepting your own mortality is like eating your vegetables: You may not want to do it, but it’s good for you.” – Caitlin Doughty
“Fast Filling began in 2011 in sector V as a trial of faith and confidence of me as a food enthusiast during a successful and fairly stable career in banking finance industry. As you should chase each and every dream of yours, it was also given a shot and we hit the bull’s eye!” – told by Master Chef participant and owner of Fast filling Mr. Rahul Gupta.
Being an avid foodie since childhood, He wanted to turned his passion into profession. And hence the journey began of Fast Filling. A very much down to earth person. A foodie by heart and love to serve people with great foods.
Fast Filling provide a various spread of vegetarian dishes those are simple, yummy and so comforting. It is a fast food joint located in the Bhawanipore locality, next to VNC Spa. You can avail a whole lot of street foods from all over world which is almost a part of their USP to take us to food journey around the globe. Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Indian list can go on and on. And surprisingly all are animal friendly.
Everything was served with a friendly smile which was very humbling and the taste and quality of food made us appreciate the simplicity in the place. A very small food joint with around 15 covers in ground floor. And the First floor is used as kitchen.

Kutchhi Dabeli Pav : The Gujrati Bun! Spicy and tangy potatoes all mashed, smothered with garlic and imly chutney and smeared in sev, chopped onions and pomegranate. Dabeli Pav originated in Mandvi, Kutch during 1960. Dabeli means to press and the potato masala is pressed between a toasted pav bun with other fillings. This is a filling snack and it was really the show stopper.
Mexican Casserole : Mexicans’ answer to Italians.. We bake better! Layered with Mexican Rice, the marinated paneer is topped with cheese sauce and baked with cheese. A cheesy comforting casserole that you can enjoy guilt-free. You can’t beat that!
Mumbaiya Tava Pulav : A Mumbai street food delicacy – steamed rice tossed with veggies and spices on tava and sautéed, served with curd. Basically a street food recipe prepared with pav bhaji masala. Tawa Pulao is a term which all Mumbaikar’s are well versed with. I can bet there will be not a single person in Mumbai who must have not eaten this dish. In almost all corners, junctions or roads of Mumbai you will find them.
Cheesy Taco Bowl with Rice : (Entry to MasterChef Auditions this year for our beloved Rahul Gupta – the chef). Taco basket stuffed with cheesy veggies served on bed of herb rice. Really, this dish is quite versatile in its own dimension and flavour. Loved the presentation too.
Mexican Pizza : Double layered crispy tortilla stuffed with beans, veggies, rice and of course Cheese! It is a popular & lip smacking creamy cheesy double layer pizza recipe. It is very popular in Mexico. The pizza looks delicious, and is just the type of meal I love. Two tortillas with cheesy stuffing in between make a flaky and flavorful crust. A delightful experience indeed.
Cheese Chilly Garlic Parantha : 2 pc. of Parantha stuffed with cheese, green chillies and garlic served with signature dips! Salsa & Sour Sauce. I am a cheese lover. I L.O.V.E it. To me, nothing tastes better than that. So, its no surprise that I found a way to experience a combination of cheese, chili and garlic into one humble paratha. The fresh cheese especially adds so much flavor to this paratha that it could get addictive. The slight garlic flavor complimented the cheese. No appetite are fussy when it comes to eating these. Mine, sure was the best dinner companion on this particular day….!
Molten Lava Cake : Choco lava ‘exploding’ from the crust of chocolate sponge cake sitting on the bed of vanilla ice cream scoop. Do you ever have those moments when you want something sweet after such a cheesy spicy dishes ? That’s where small batch desserts come in super handy. And can I just tell you something? These molten chocolate lava cakes may be my favorite small batch desert. It was a pure bliss with vanila icecream.
The food is all freshly made and the price for what you are given is very reasonable.
All in all one of the best restaurants I have been to in recent times.Such good value for money, especially for its location. Would 100% go back,and have recommended to all my friends.
